extending vlan 301 through ASR 1006 (extending the broadcast domain)
Good evening everyone. My brain hurts trying to figure this out. I'm used to Layer 3 switches so this is different.
According to the documentation, this should be allowed using EVC and Bridge Domains. But there is one disclaimer in the documentation... if you've configured a channel-group on a physical ports, you can't have port-channels (or something like that).
I have configured multiple port-channels (for port redundancy), each port-channel having multiple sub-interfaces (for vlan creation on this beast). Each sub-interface has an ip address. Now it has come to my attention that there are two vlans that need to be extended from a remote office (via port-channel 3) to our Core (via port-channel 1). I want to be clear, I am trying to get this router to simply forward layer 2 traffic from port-channel 1 to port-channel 3. I tried the following:
example: vlans 300 and 301 need to be extended.
create additional sub-interfaces like this,...
int port-channel 1.300
encapsulation dot1q 300
int port-channel 1.301
encapsulation dot1q 301
int port-channel 3.300
encap dot1q 300
int port-channel 3.301
encap dot1q 3.301
But that didn't work. I tried evc and bdi but it's confusing as heck. Anyone got any ideas? Is this possible? Can you point me to a resource that can make it crystal clear for me?
